Work with fresh indigo including persicaria tinctoria in the Botanical studio and garden. This is a special workshop where you will observe indigo from plant to powder. Enrolments are being taken now. When you enlist will be asked to either bring or purchase a specified pack of textiles, plant material, and will be emailed a ‘to bring’ list – this list may include things you need to purchase in advance of the workshop. On day 3 you will be dyeing with your indigo. The price of this workshop reflects the work involved in growing a large enough crop for students to experience this fundamental process in Australia. The workshop fee includes healthy snacks, your plant material, and a vegan gluten free lunch.
